make check recommended practice?

Now that I'm trying to chase down test failures for my Solaris build, I have a question about the "make check" command.

Whenever one compiles octave with only a subset of libraries (e.g., I don't include support for sparse matrices since we don't need it), then there is a large number of tests that are known already at configure time to fail. However, when looking at the output of make check or fntests.log, it is extremely tedious to look at every of the currently > 150 failures and determine if it's expected to fail or not.

How do people solve this problem? Is there some intelligence built-in that could keep the known-failing tests from running in the first place?
